I received my invitation today to the October 25th commissioning of our boat USS NORTH DAKOTA (SSN-784), and I know some of you have received yours. It’s a great invitation and a nice souvenir even if you do NOT go to the commissioning!
There was one invitation sent per household as in most case we had both the husband and wife on one line. IF you are going to the commissioning you MUST complete the return mail postcard. Please mark “I” or “We” and indicate the number of tickets you will need for your family members who are attending the commissioning. Please take notice of the RSVP NOTICE and do NOT return the postcard if you are NOT going to attend the commissioning ceremony and do NOT ask for more tickets than the number in your family who are actually planning on attending the commissioning ceremony. I understand the tickets are not transferable.
I loved the two-sided card with a photo of our boat underway on one side and the boat’s crest on the other.
The excitement of the approaching commissioning ceremony is growing for me everyday!
